thanks for the response.

I want to load the file from the disk, make modifications to it and then write it back to the disk. I can accomplish that without enumerating the file but when I write it back with Json.encode, the file is compressed without tabs and linefeeds. If I enumerate it to a string, or string[] then I can add tabs and line feeds where I want them, and write the string back to a file.

Also, I am learning the language and want to understand the commands and understand why that one does not work. It seems like that is a useful command to know.

I believe I found the problem ... the file I am working with has two collections within it.
So the first element is a collection and the second element is a string. So it will generate a type mismatch no matter what you try to assign it to. :(

I think that you can do what you want with a simpler edit structure.
I have taken your file opened it and split it by line, then created a new array without all the indentation. You can edit the data then replace the old data with the new. This leaves the indentation as it was.

I hope it helps.
